I love spoiling myself during bath. The best way to do that are organic and natural body scrubs. So, this time I decided to make my own homemade lemon body scrub. We all know benefits of essential lemon oil. I will combine these benefits with Epsom salt and coconut oil. And make the ultimate homemade lemon body scrub.
Before I have already tried body scrubs with different ingredients. This time I want to give a chance to essential lemon oil. And I am glad I did this. Essential lemon oil has been a great choice of ingredient. The only difference of this body scrub from other homemade body scrub recipes I tried is the essential oil. Other than that, the carrier oil and the main ingredient, which is salt, is the same.
You can also play with those ingredients to make your own homemade body scrub recipe. Or, you can use my homemade lemon body scrub recipe below. You will see the changes on your skin when you start using this amazing body scrub.
If you have sensitive skin, you can use this homemade body scrub for once a week. Even once a week will make a huge difference after one month. If you skin isn’t that sensitive, you can apply this homemade lemon body scrub twice a week.

You can use this amazing homemade lemon body scrub on your body and on your hands. For your body, use the lemon body scrub while you are taking a bath or shower. Apply the lemon body scrub, massage your body to clean your skin, and rinse with water.
For your hands, you can use this homemade lemon body scrub every day. Just take the lemon body scrub, massage on your hands, and rinse with water. Essential lemon oil in this amazing scrub recipe will help decrease your skin spots on your hand. While you are using this natural homemade lemon body scrub, you need to be careful about using a sunscreen.
As essential lemon oil will make your skin sensitive to sun, you should apply a strong sunscreen before going out. This way, you can protect your skin against negative effects of sun. You can store natural homemade lemon body scrub in a closed jar for almost 6 months. But, I recommend you to consume the mixture in 3 months and use fresh mixture all the time.
